Washing the Baby Jesus (Shade Version)

Two servants with rolled-up sleeves give the baby Jesus his first wash as Joseph looks on with head in hand. Part of a Nativity scene on the 12th-century west facade of Église Notre-Dame-la-Grande, Poitiers. View taken during a cloudy moment, providing less attractive colors but no shadows.
